Obama’s Parting Gift: $221 Million Sent to Palestinians

Obama’s Parting Gift: $221 Million Sent to Palestinians

Defying Congress, the Obama Administration made a last minute payment to the Palestinian Authority.

FOX’s Jon Decker has more from the White House:
State Department officials confirm that the Obama Administration in its waning hours, defied Republican opposition and quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority that Republican members of Congress had been blocking.

Lawmakers were notified in a letter, dated January 20th, that then Secretary of State John Kerry sent to them just hours before the Inauguration of President Trump.

The money is supposed to be used for humanitarian aid in the West Bank and Gaza and to support political and security reforms, but the Palestinian Authority has often diverted U.S. aid for other purposes.

Victims of the Terror attack in Fort Lauderdale Florida

Olga Woltering, 84, from Georgia

Parishioners at the Catholic Church of the Transfiguration in Cobb County, Georgia, remember Olga Woltering as “the life of the party.”

“She was always a bright spirit,” Ron Schaefer said. “We’d see her at church, and it was always a pleasure to see her smiling face and say hello to her.”

On Saturday, those same church members who recalled the octogenarian’s bright smile circulated news of her death.

She and her husband, 90, had been an active part of their congregation since 1978.

At Saturday evening’s Mass, Father Fernando Molina-Restrepo spoke of evil, saying there are some people walking in darkness, “bringing pain and clouds of sadness into our world.”

“We saw an example of this yesterday at the Fort Lauderdale airport,” he said.

Woltering and her husband flew to Fort Lauderdale for a cruise, parishioners said. Friends said she was originally from England. Ralph Woltering had served in the U.S. Air Force, parishioner Alvin Connolly said.

“From what I understand, their sons are in Florida with her husband right now,” Connolly said.

The couple lived in a retirement community.

“She and her husband were kind of the life of the party,” Connolly said. “They’d go to a dance, and they’d be the last ones on the floor.

“You look at them and say, ‘Man I hope I can do everything they do when I’m that age,’” Connolly said.

Woltering was active in the ladies auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic charity affiliated with her church, said Roger Heil, the grand knight of the local Knights of Columbus group. Her husband was involved in the Knights of Columbus, he said.

Terry Andres 62 of Virginia Beach, Virginia

Terry Andres started celebrating his 62nd birthday on Friday. He was getting ready to go on a 16-day cruise when authorities said Esteban Santiago ended his life at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Andres and his wife, Ann Andres, flew to Fort Lauderdale from Virginia Beach, Virginia. They were at the Delta Sky Club, when he decided to go get a luggage cart. He died at the baggage claim area of Terminal 2.

Ann Andres survived. Their daughter Ryan Kim  and the families of four other victims killed were still trying to understand what happened.

“I know that everyone always says that people are the greatest in the world, but he was the greatest person you could know,” Kim said during an interview with the Palm Beach Post. “He never had a horrible word to say about anyone or anything.”

Andres was a member of the Oceana Volunteer Fire Department. Other members of the department said he had been a support technician since 2004.

“He was well liked and respected for both his dedication to being a volunteer, as well as his professional approach,” the department said in a statement, according to WAVY-TV.

Michael Oehme, 57

 

Iowa couple Michael and Kari Oehme loved to travel. They were heading to Fort Lauderdale on Friday for another high-seas adventure when they were caught in the spray of bullets that killed five people at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Michael Oehme, 57, was fatally shot. His wife, 55, was shot in the shoulder and is expected to recover, according to a family member.

Michael Oehme was a surveyor and had his own company called Boundaryline Surveys Oehme-Nielsen & Associates, according to public records. His wife is a customer service representative for a telecommunications company, according to her Facebook profile.

They live with their dog in a two-story home in the Wilshire Heights subdivision in Council Bluffs, a city of 62,000 residents in Iowa just east of Omaha, Neb. A neighbor said they have lived in the development for at least 20 years.

They have a daughter, Andrea Oehme, 28, who works in food service at a hospital, according to her social media profile.

They have a daughter, Andrea Oehme, 28, who works in food service at a hospital, according to her social media profile.

The day of the shooting, she updated her profile photo with “Pray for Fort Lauderdale” and her cover photo with an image of a candle that read “Pray for Ft. Lauderdale Airport Shooting Victims.”

Through their social media posts, which include selfies, the Oehmes radiated love, a tight family of three. One of Andrea Oehme’s updates reads, “Family is everything.”

On Father’s Day, she posted, “Happy Father’s Day to the most amazing man I’ve ever met … MY DAD!!! Love you to the moon and back Daddy.”

In a photo from last February, she posed with her mom on a Florida dock and wished a happy birthday “to my best friend and the best mom ever!! I’m so lucky to have you in my life.” Another 2016 image shows them smiling while attending a Ringo Starr performance.

And in a separate post last year, Kari Oehme wrote on her daughter’s page, “No matter how old you are, we will never leave your side. Love you so, so much.”

Elizabeth Oehme-Miller said that her brother Michael and her sister-in-law were preparing for a Caribbean cruise scheduled to depart Saturday.

She said they traveled often, enjoyed cruising and were looking forward to their next trip, according to The Associated Press. She also added that a family member is heading to Fort Lauderdale to be with Kari Oehme.

What does it do?

BlackEnergy malware was known to have been used to deliver KillDisk, a feature that could render systems unusable and could obliterate critical components on an infected system.  It was reported to have possessed remarkable functions that could place Industrial Control Systems (ICS) at risk. An attack scenario involves a target receiving an email that contains a malicious attachment. The attacker spoofs the sender address in order to appear to be coming from Rada (the Ukrainian parliament). Once the target opens the attachment, the victim is asked to run the macro in the document.

EAGLE WATCH ! – Link Fixed – American Bald Eagle

American Bald Eagle


FIRST CAMERA EAGLE CAM

 

———————————

Now Un-Burried 1-19-2017 @9:17pm

M15  or it might have been Harriet ( MOM ) Just Burried the non-Viable Egg in the nest
Just after 3:10pm 1-19-2017 

The Eaglet watch continues!
Watch live as Harriet (mom)and M15 (dad) Tend to the baby !

See the 1st Hatchling here

The bald eagle has a body length of 70–102 cm (28–40 in). Typical wingspan is between 1.8 and 2.3 m (5.9 and 7.5 ft) and mass is normally between 3 and 6.3 kg (6.6 and 13.9 lb).[5]

Females are about 25% larger than males, averaging 5.6 kg (12 lb), and against the males’ average weight of 4.1 kg (9.0 lb).[2][9][10][11]

The size of the bird varies by location and generally corresponds with Bergmann’s rule, since the species increases in size further away from the Equator and the tropics. For example, eagles from South Carolina average 3.27 kg (7.2 lb) in mass and 1.88 m (6.2 ft) in wingspan, smaller than their northern counterparts.[12]

The largest eagles are from Alaska, where large females may weigh up to 7.5 kg (17 lb) and span 2.44 m (8.0 ft) across the wings.[4][13]

A survey of adult weights in Alaska showed that females weighed on average 6.3 kg (14 lb) and males weighed 4.3 kg (9.5 lb).[14]

Among standard linear measurements, the wing chord is 51.5–69 cm (20.3–27.2 in), the tail is 23–37 cm (9.1–14.6 in) long, and the tarsus is 8 to 11 cm (3.1 to 4.3 in).[5][15]

The culmen reportedly ranges from 3 to 7.5 cm (1.2 to 3.0 in), while the measurement from the gape to the tip of the bill is 7–9 cm (2.8–3.5 in).[15][16]

The bald eagle is an opportunistic feeder which subsists mainly on fish, which it swoops down and snatches from the water with its talons.

It builds the largest nest of any North American bird and the largest tree nests ever recorded for any animal species, up to 4 m (13 ft) deep, 2.5 m (8.2 ft) wide, and 1 metric ton (1.1 short tons) in weight.

 

HOW DARE YOU OBAMA ?

How dare you Obama ?

We just heard that Obama abstained from the UN Vote.

It is the Opinion of this website that What we call the President of the United States, Is an anti-semite through and through.

And maybe even one step further, He may be Anti-American orAnti – “JudeoChristian values”

He has proven it in oh so many ways over the last eight years.

A President Donald J. Trump will have his hands full once in office trying to undo the things Obama did or in this case didn’t do, to correct the position of the US in World Affairs

We believe these moves he has made were planned acts to weaken this country and our Allies.

And now the press is twisting the story around. and are talking out the both sides of their mouths, Blaming President Elect Trump who wanted to Veto the action taken by the UN, ( TO STOP IT ) but Obama had her abstain, ( A NO VOTE ) allowed the terrorists to win in the Middle East including IRAN …

Can you see the BIG PICTURE ???


Samantha Powers Double talks herself at the United Nations

They say President Obama is facing widespread backlash from Republicans and some Democrats.  I would say almost the ENTIRE COUNTRY  ( USA )

How dare you Obama (United States) abstained from a vote on a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements, allowing the resolution to pass.

“Today’s passage of an ill-conceived resolution on Israeli settlements marks another shameful chapter in the bizarre anti-Israel history of the United Nations,” Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said in a statement Friday.

Thanks to that thing we call the President of the United States
On Friday, the Security Council voted 14-0 on a resolution condemning Israeli settlements in Palestinian territory as a “flagrant violation” of international law that have “”no legal validity.” It demands a halt to “all Israeli settlement activities,” saying this “is essential for salvaging the two-state solution.”

THE COST FOR THE REFUGEES $$$

THE COST FOR THE REFUGEES $$$

And Families here can not get Health Care because of the cost and
“they ”  are getting it free.

At the bottom there is a link to find out a lot more

 

As Americans continue to debate what to do about the humanitarian crisis in the Middle East, this analysis attempts to estimate the costs of resettling refugees from that region in the United States. Although we do not consider all costs, our best estimate is that in their first five years in the United States each refugee from the Middle East costs taxpayers $64,370 — 12 times what the UN estimates it costs to care for one refugee in neighboring Middle Eastern countries. The cost of resettlement includes heavy welfare use by Middle Eastern refugees; 91 percent receive food stamps and 68 percent receive cash assistance. Costs also include processing refugees, assistance given to new refugees, and aid to refugee-receiving communities. Given the high costs of resettling refugees in the United States, providing for them in neighboring countries in the Middle East may be a more cost-effective way to help them.

Among the findings of this analysis:

  • On average, each Middle Eastern refugee resettled in the United States costs an estimated $64,370 in the first five years, or $257,481 per household.
  • The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has requested $1,057 to care for each Syrian refugee annually in most countries neighboring Syria.
  • For what it costs to resettle one Middle Eastern refugee in the United States for five years, about 12 refugees can be helped in the Middle East for five years, or 61 refugees can be helped for one year.
  • UNHCR reports a gap of $2.5 billion in funding that it needs to care for approximately four million Syrians in neighboring countries.
  • The five-year cost of resettling about 39,000 Syrian refugees in the United States is enough to erase the current UNHCR funding gap.
  • The five-year costs of resettlement in the United States include $9,230 spent by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within HHS and the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) within the State Department in the first year, as well as $55,139 in expenditures on welfare and education.
  • Very heavy use of welfare programs by Middle Eastern refugees, and the fact that they have only 10.5 years of education on average, makes it likely that it will be many years, if ever, before this population will cease to be a net fiscal drain on public coffers — using more in public services than they pay in taxes.
  • It is worth adding that ORR often reports that most refugees are self-sufficient within five years. However, ORR defines “self-sufficiency” as not receiving cash welfare. A household is still considered “self-sufficient” even if it is using any number of non-cash programs such as food stamps, public housing, or Medicaid.
  • Refugees are admitted for humanitarian reasons, not because they are supposed to be self-sufficient, so the drain on public coffers that Middle Eastern refugees create is expected. However, given limited resources, the high cost of resettlement in the United States means careful consideration should be given to alternatives to resettlement if the goal is the help as many people possible.

 

  • Refugees and Welfare. Unlike other new legal immigrants, refugees are eligible for all welfare programs upon arrival. Further, there are several short-term programs, such as Refugee Cash Assistance (RCA) and Refugee Medical Assistance (RMA), for which only refugees and other humanitarian immigrants are eligible. Refugees have the most generous access to welfare programs of any population in the country. The ORR conducts the Annual Survey of Refugees each year and the 2013 survey provides a detailed profile of the socio-demographic and economic characteristics of refugees who entered the country in the prior five years, including use of many of the nation’s major welfare programs by sending region. We use information published by ORR on Middle Eastern refugees’ welfare use as the basis of our cost estimates.
